Event Details

Bloody Mary Fest returns Sunday, October 14th to the beautiful lakefront venue, Theater on the Lake. Enjoy some of the city's best Bloody Marys featured in our Bloody Mary Competition 6. Since 2014 our guests have helped select the best Bloody Mary in Chicago. Last year, Lillie’s Q brought the trophy back to Bucktown - who will take the crown in 2018? The Bloody Mary Fest experience also includes specialty brunch-themed cocktails, craft beer and brunch bites with live music, lawn games, an Artisan Market and so much more.
